Despite shootout loss Sharks show they're a confident group in third period against Leafs

The real victim of the final scuffle, a tuft of Thornton's scraggly hair, appeared on camera beneath one of the officials right before he separated the fighters.

"I didn't mean to grab him there". It was Kadri's first point since November 30. "You have to have mental toughness, and its easy to be positive when things are going well, but it takes some mental toughness to be that way when things aren't going so well".
